Getting a Haircut for a Good Cause

Written by Meredith Farley

A student gets her hair trimmed for Locks of Love.

Ithaca College students saved some money recently while supporting a great cause. Barbers at Hillel's annual Shoshana Rudnick "Inch-a-Thon" cut students' hair in the north foyer of Campus Center.

Students who donated 10 or more inches of hair received a free haircut. If they donated less than 10 inches, the cost was just $10 -- quite a deal.

The hair and money was donated to Locks of Love (in Florida) and Zichron Menachem: The Israeli Association to Support Children with Cancer and their Families. Both organizations use the hair to make wigs for children going through chemotherapy. 

Locks of Love began in 1997. Since then, the organization has helped over 1,000 children.
